What kind of house plant is this? (Picture)

Hi there!

I need help identifying this house plant!

I bought it at a farmers market, and totally forget the name.

It produces little babies- which you can pluck off, and plant yourself- they grow to the size of the pot you plant them in. (This is what I was told..)

If anyone can help me identify this plant, I would be so grateful! Thanks :)

It's a Kalanchoe.

It is commonly called the " Mexican Hat plant" Kalanchoe daigremontiana.

It used to be a common houseplant in the '50s . All parts of it are poisonous, and can be hazardous or fatal if eaten by small pets or infants.
